Mueller not ready for Pres. Trump aide's sentencing, filing says

Open this

In a new court filing, special counsel Robert Mueller's team said they're not ready for Gates' sentencing because he is continuing to cooperate with "several" ongoing investigations.

Mueller's team said on Tuesday that Manafort and Kilimnik discussed the Ukraine peace plan in person and in messages from 2 August 2016. As both sides did in November, Tuesday's filing proposed updating the court about whether to set a sentencing date for Gates in another 60 days, on March 15. But the latest developments indicate Mueller's team is far from done and is aggressively pursuing several different cases related to Russian interference.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has filed a heavily-redacted court document Tuesday afternoon outlining the underlying evidence to support its claims that Paul Manafort, the president's onetime campaign chairman, lied to federal investigators.

The status report in Gates' case also comes as Manafort sees his own criminal matter lurch to its finish.

Although heavy redacted, the documents state that Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, claimed he was trying to get people appointed in the new presidential administration.

Previously, Manafort was suspected to be the star cooperator in the Russian Federation probe.

Williams demolishes Maria to ease into second round
When she returned to the tour last season, she often was asked to rate herself in comparison to how good she played in the past. The tennis legend debuts a new outfit for every grand slam, and her opener at the Australian Open on Tuesday was no exception.

The filing also touched on Manafort's other alleged lies, including about his interactions with Konstantin Kilimnik, a former business partner who Mueller has accused of having Russian intelligence ties.

The special counsel filed a memo in December saying that Manafort's lies to federal investigators were not simply "memory lapses" on his part. That move would likely touch off a bitter legal battle between the White House and Mueller's team.

The allegations, if confirmed, would mean that Trump's campaign chief was working on a plan to settle Russia's conflict with Ukraine on terms favourable for the Kremlin while the Russian government was interfering in the 2016 U.S. election to help Trump. A second round of charges filed in Virginia months later centered around Manafort and Gates' past lobbying and financial activities, including tax fraud and money laundering.

Cohen also revealed Trump spoke with him more extensively during the presidential campaign about the proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow than Cohen admitted to Congress previous year. Sentencing in that case is scheduled for early February, and could land him a lengthy prison term.

At the same time, the Russians' military intelligence hacked Democratic targets and facilitated the public release of stolen emails to damage Trump's opponents. One heavily redacted section refers to a meeting Manafort had before leaving the Trump campaign on August 19, 2016.

Since then, Trump's new lawyers have counseled against doing an interview. He is also reportedly involved in a federal investigation of Trump's inaugural committee, where Gates served in a senior role.
